The privacy of our medical records has already been compromised by federal legislation prior to the passage of ObamaCare, such as the Stimulus bill of 2009. In an article entitled, "Obesity Rating for Every American Must Be Included in Stimulus-Mandated Electronic Health Records, Says HHS," CNSNews.com reported on July 15 that:
During the course of monitoring the Glenn Beck TV Show from the perspective of a longtime member of The John Birch Society, I made another pleasant discovery this past week. During the July 15 show, Beck spent a few minutes discussing the book, Philip Dru: Administrator, by Colonel Edward Mandell House.
On last night’s TV show Glenn Beck spent most of the first segment of his show discussing how similar the Democratic and Republican parties have become in recent years. To help his audience understand how this has come about Beck used a famous quote from Carroll Quigley’s infamous book Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, which was published in 1966.
As a longtime member of The John Birch Society, the premier organization warning Americans about the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) for the past 50 years, it is always gratifying to see others raising the warning too. However, before looking at what Glenn Beck said about the CFR yesterday, let's review what the JBS has been saying over the years.
Yesterday President Obama announced the recess appointment of Dr. Donald Berwick to be the new Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services within the Department of Health and Human Services.
As a longtime member of The John Birch Society (JBS), I’ve been watching the Glenn Beck TV Show closely since he moved over to Fox News in 2008. I’ve been fascinated to see how Beck has been getting progressively (sorry for the bad word choice) closer to presenting American history in the way that The John Birch Society has been doing it for over 50 years.
Update, July 2: Yesterday Rep. King's discharge petition got 29 new signers for a total of 109! Immediately after ObamaCare was passed into law back in March, many representatives and senators introduced repeal ObamaCare bills, including Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). Those bills are now in limbo in various congressional committees and will never see the light of day, much less come to a vote, unless further action is taken.
UPDATE, June 24: House passed H.R. 5175 by 219-206 today. Senate still must vote. As you might be already aware, House Speaker Pelosi had to pull the DISCLOSE Act, H.R. 5175, from a scheduled vote last Friday, when widespread outrage erupted over a special exemption for the NRA in exchange for not opposing the bill. Well, the bill is still alive and well with a vote now scheduled in the House for tomorrow, June 24. The Senate leadership has already promised Pelosi that if the House passes the bill, then the Senate will vote on it in time for it to take effect for the elections this fall.
Last night Ron Paul made an urgent appeal via a 2 1/2 minute video (see below) for immediate help in contacting senators to reject Bernie Sanders' new, watered-down Fed transparency amendment and to support an amendment with the original "Audit the Fed" language of H.R. 1207 and S. 604. A vote on Sanders' amendment to S. 3217 (the financial services overhaul bill) is expected on Tuesday, May 11. (For results of the votes on May 11, read "Senate Caves to Fed Pressure, Waters Down Audit.")
There’s a lot of confusion occurring over what’s being nullified by the “Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act” legislation that’s been introduced in over 30 states, and already enacted into law in Virginia, Idaho, Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana. This legislation has been based on model legislation developed by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) back in December 2008, over a year before ObamaCare finally became law.
